A brief introduction to Tactical Casualty Care, using a giant stuffed dog to make the material accessible to everyone. In this “softer side of Crisis Medicine,” we work through a brief casualty evaluation, start to finish, including blood sweep, tourniquet application, wound packing, bandaging, hypothermia prevention, the recovery position, and casualty movement. Considerations of safety and tactics in providing care, as well as personal protective equipment are also discussed.
This video is a great introduction for the casualty care curious, who haven’t decided they’re ready to jump into training, or even for kids, provided you talk to them about what they’ve learned. No fake blood or actual photographs are used.
